// A bit of a hack but it works// The article snippet is wrapped onto a second line, even when #article-sub is emptyif( $("div#article-sub").children().length == 0 ) {$("div#article-sub").remove();} Derby County boss Nigel Clough has confirmed he is trying to extend the loan deal of Fulham full-back Fredrik Stoor.

The Sweden international's initial month-long stay at Pride Park expired after Saturday's 4-2 defeat by Queens Park Rangers, during which he was substituted due to a black eye.

Stoor will now return to Fulham, but Clough is keen to agree terms to keep the right-back at Derby until the New Year.

"His eye completely closed," said Clough.

"If you have seen the Rocky films, you'll know what I mean.

"He has a good black eye and there was no way he could continue but we are looking to extend his loan."

The 25-year-old made four appearances during his initial stint with the Rams, having featured just twice as a substitute in the Premier League for Fulham since joining from Rosenborg in 2008.
